8 Reasons Men Don’t Like Going Home

August 16, 2021

Home is where your peace is. At least that’s where it’s supposed to be. Unfortunately, for many men, going home is synonymous with continuous headaches that make you wish you stayed in the office.

1. Your woman who stresses your life

Men know that the moment they get home, they know that all the office meetings they had cannot be as stressful as the deliverable they will meet at home.

2. Your woman can talk for 3 hours without stopping for breath

The moment you get home, your babe will start telling you about what Sayo from Accounting did with Bode from Operations, meanwhile you’re worrying about your boss sacking you for not meeting your KPI.

3. Your woman calls every 12 minutes to ask why you’ve not gotten home

You have been stuck inside traffic for the past 3 hours but your woman thinks you’re out cheating, knowing fully well that black men don’t cheat.

4. Your woman eats out of your food

You get home after a long day of answering your oga as to why your department has not grown and you just want to take your anger out on eba and okro but that’s when your babe will decide she wants to eat with you. She will chook hand inside your food and carry the biggest meat.

5. Your babe can’t decide what she wants to eat

You call your woman and ask what she wants to eat so you can buy it on your way but every time, “Hmm, I don’t know” but she will decide after you’ve gotten home. I’m sorry but you will only watch me eat.

6. Your woman thinks you’re always cheating

You can’t even spend five minutes out with the boys without her calling you 17 times to find out “what’s happening” which is just code to check whether she can hear female voices in the background. Stay woke, king.

7. The women who won’t let you play your PS4 in peace

This one won’t let you play PS4 until you tell her 56 reasons why you love her.

8. Men wanting alone time but not being able to ask for it

You want some time to yourself but fear go dey catch you to ask for time because she will say it’s because you don’t love her anymore.
